We no longer have a home in Sheep Laurel, but we were there for 25 years until 2021. Red was the spirit of the place to us! His hearty, "Hello, Miz Sanders," always made me happy to be there. He and my husband Drayton became great friends. Red was always willing to help. He was one of a kind. He was our good friend, and our hearts go out to you Kristie, Craig, Trevor, and all Red's family.
